Agilent's Momentum 3D Planar EM Simulator is qualified by TowerJazz for various processes and has shown silicon-accurate results. Momentum stack-up files are available on demand for most processes.
Momentum is the leading 3D planar electromagnetic (EM) simulator used for passive circuit modeling and analysis. Momentum offers a broad range of dedicated RFIC functionalities like automated via simplification, process scaling, metal fill removal, but also goes beyond 3D planar through direct bondwire or Through-Silicon-Via (TSV) support.
Momentum is supported for use within ADS or Virtuoso.
You can also contact Agilent (email@example.com), if you have any difficulties to get access to the required Momentum stack-up file.
Agilent's GoldenGate RFIC Simulation Software is an advanced simulation and analysis solution for integrated mixed signal RFIC designs that is fully integrated into the Cadence Analog Design Environment (ADE) and is officially supported at TowerJazz for all Virtuoso PDKs.
